On Friday the Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan told reporters in Istanbul that Greece is avoiding a solution to the Cyprus problem.

“We have told Cyprus and Greece clearly that they should not expect a solution without Turkey as guarantor. We are going to be there forever,” he said.

Erdogan also added that pulling Turkish military troops out of the occupied northern third of the island is out of the question unless all sides pulled out their military presence.

The island has been divided since 1974 when Turkish military troop invaded and occupied the northern third of the island displacing thousands of Greek-Cypriots and causing thousands to go missing until the present time.
